Startin' A New Year!
I pruned and mulched the raspberries too. Yes, I know you can't really see much but some types of raspberries you are supposed to cut all the way to the ground. I'm still learning on these things. I also applied another layer of enriched topsoil around them before I mulched. They did pretty good this past year but I want more!!! To the right you can see a couple of cabbage plants and some leeks. They are doing well and in that seemingly empty space above them is 2 new kinds of garlic. I really hope they do good. Over to the left is my strawberry bed but I think I'm going to order a new type this spring that is better suited for this climate.
I just cram all kinds of things in here and it all stays perfectly dry. Pruners, clippers, gloves, string and so on. It's very handy to have it right in the garden and not have to keep running back to the shed or whatever to get stuff.
So, I had intended on doing one of those end of the year synopsis kinda things but haven't got around to it yet. I might still. I also had a new year's goals post in mind so we'll see! I wish you all the best for the new year. May you find everything you are hoping for.
